was declared a Bonus of ^l 7s. 6d. per cent, per annum.

(Relieve they have made every reasonable 
@=^ effort to secm^e accuracy of detail as "well 
as coniioleteness of inforniation in this issue 
— the first for which they are responsible — • 
of the long-established Paisley Directory. 

The survey of the Tow^n made under their 
insx^ection in x^reparation for the publication 
of the Volume, Avas minute and extensive. 
Yet there is reason to fear that some joersons 
in business may not have been reached, and 
that others may have failed to return, or 
neglected to have ready ^vhen called for, the 
Schedule left w^itli them in order to be filled u^ 
with the j)ai'ticulars ^\ranted for publication. 

Difiiculties such as these are inse]_3arable 
from the com]3ilation of a Directory. Probably 
no publication of the kind has been abso- 
lutely ]3erfect, even Avhen long under the 
same management. An ajoproach to some- 
tliing like perfection is j)erhax3S all that can 
be hoped for. The Publishers of this Volume 
exx3ect, hoAvever, that they will be able, in 
next year's issue, to rectify such mistakes 
and to sup]3ly such omissions as may be ap- 
parent in the present loublication.

Is the largest - si^ed and most extensively- circulated V/ee^ly 
JNleifl/spapep iii the Goui^ty. 

Its columns contain carefully-selected items of News, foreign and 
domestic, particular attention being paid to local and district 
intelligence. During all its career the Gazette has been the 
chosen medium through which gentlemen of literary tastes and 
antiquarian zeal throughout the County have made known their 
views and communicated the results of their studies to the 
blic. So valual51e have the articles tlius contributed been 
considered, that many of them have been reprinted in book^^or^ 
pamphlet form and enjoyed a wide sale. 

The Proprietors have in view several changes and improvements 
in the production of the Gazette; and, through the conveniences for 
getting up and publishing the newspaper which their new Office 
affords, hope to be able at an early day to realise these intentions. 

Ibe Gazette consists of Eight Large Pages, and is published 
every Saturday morning, price Twopence.

PARCELS POST. 

1. A Parcel, within the prescribed limits of weight and size, can now be sent from any one 
part of thd United Kingdom to any other part of it, whatever be the distance, for a moderate and 
uniform rate of charge. 

2. There are upwards of 15,000 Post Offices at which such Parcels can be posted, so that con- 
venient means of sending are within the reach of all, 

3. Parcels will be tielivered regularly at every place where there is a delivery of letters, and 
may therefore now be sent to many places where previously they could only be sent, if at all, 
irregularly and by uncertain methods. 

4. All postage being paid in advance, the sender knows exactly what the service will cost, 
and also that the receiver of the Parcel will be put to no expense. 

The following are the chief Regulations of the Parcels Post: — 

1. The Rates of Postage are, for a Parcel : — 

Not exceeling 1 lb. in weight, 3d. I Exceeding 3 Ibs.andnot exceeding 5 lbs,...9d.

greatest length and girth combined, 6 ft. For example — A Parcel measuring 3 ft. 6 in. in length 
may measute as much as 2 ft. 6 in. in girth. A shorter Parcel may be thicker ; thus, if it mea- 
sure no more than 3 ft. in length, it may measure as much as 3 ft. in girth —i.e., round its 
thickest part. 

3. The most convenient mode of measuring will be by means of a tane 6 feet long, having the 
length of 3 ft. 6 in. marked thereon. Such a tape might cjnveniently be marked in one colour 
tap to 3 ft. 6 iu., and the remaining part in another colour. 

3. The full postage rausf be^jaic? in advance, by meaas of ordinary postage stamps, which must 
be affixed by the sender. 

4. Parcels must not be posted in a letter-box, but must be handed over the counter of a Post 
Office. If a Parcel be posted in a letter-box, it will be treated and charged as a letter (or as a 
book-packet if entitled to pass at the book-rate of postage). 

5. The Postmaster-General is not liable for any loss arising from Paresis being lost or 
damaged in transmission through the post; but every precaution is taken to prevent loss or 
damage. 

Prohibited Parcels. 

6. Parcels bearing or containing writing or mai ks of an offensive or indecent character ; or 
containing gunpowder, cartridges. Inciter matches, or other combustible material, live animals,

7. Parcels containing ripe fruit or eggs, fish, meat, or other animal matter ; or knives and 
other sharp instruments; can only be sent if so packed as to prevent all risk of injury to other 
Parcels. Liquids must be sent in bottles, cases, or cans securely stoppered, and so packed as to 
be secure from breakage. 

N.B. — The public will greatly assist the work of the Post Office, and help towards the safe 
delivery of Parcels, bv taking care that they are in all cases strongly and secuiely packed, espe- 
cially thoae with fragile or perishable contents. 

Collection of Parcels in Rural Districts.

for despatch wherever they now collect letters. The Postman on toot must not accept from any 
one person a greater weight of Parcels than 7 lbs. in the aggregate, unless he shall have re- 
ceived notice, on ths previous day, from such person of his intention to send a greater weight. 
A mounted Rural Postman is not required to accept a greater weight in the aggregate than 21

THE PAISLEY DIRECTORY 

ADVERTISING LIST. 
BOOKBINDING 

IS the art of connecting together, in a durable and convenient 
manner, the several parts of a Book. The craft is very ancient ; the 
Romans had their Bihliopegi for doing up their Books in Rolls ; and during 
the Middle Ages the binding of Books in a square form was executed by the 
monks. The sudden and successful rise of Cheap Literature has caused most 
Households to have an accumulation of Numbers or Parts of Books, such as 
"Chambers's Journal," "Good Words," "Harper's Monthly," " G-irl's 
Own Paper," — such accumulations being of little comparative value either 
for reading or reference until they have been submitted to the art of the 
Bookbinder. All such Periodicals, Bibles, Albums, or Volumes of Music, 
neatly Bound at Moderate Prices, by

GLASGOW GHAIN AND GENERAL 

GRSNDINQ MILL 

AND 

COFFEE ROASTING WORKS. 



A FRENCH Scientific Gentleman, who has directed his attention 
to the subject of 'Coffee Boasting, says: — I have found that 
Coffee is better roasted, and more of the aroma retained, when a double 
cylinder is used — the air between the interior and exterior cylinders 
acting as a non-conductor of heat. It is done more uniformly, while the 
essential oil on which the aroma depends is less liable to be depressed 
than when exposed to the fierce heat of a fire in a single cylinder. 

In the double rotary globular method of roasting, as practised at 
Mr. MiNTo's Works, Grasme Street, Glasgow, the above principle is 
acted upon, in as much as the globe (which has superseded the 
cylinder since the application of steam power to this branch) revolves 
in a medium of heated air, which experience has shown best prevents 
the dispersion of the essential oil aroma.

At Glasgow, on 25tli April, 1884, Lord Provost M'Onte said : — "At the 
31st December, 1883, the Accumulated Capital amounted to very close upon 
£176,000, which, after satisfying all claims, seems to be increasing at the 
rate of £16,000 per year. I am not aware of any Life Assurance Society of 
a similar kind that can show such wonderful results. It must be satisfac- 
tory to your Members to know that it is now one of the most economicallj'' 
managed Societies in Scotland — a statement which ought to give confidence, 
and serve to induce New Members to join even more largely than hitherto. " 

At Paisley, on 4th March, 1884, Provost Clark said : — "I feel pleased 
at having the opportunity of testifying my sympathy with the objects of the 
Scottish Legal Life Assurance Society — a Society instituted thirty-two years, 
ago, and one that has now grown to be a power for great good in the land. 
- . . I shall simply close by wishing your prosperous Society increased 
prosperity ; that it might thereby be able to shower down increased 
hlessings upon its rapidly increasing Members. "
